Film festival teams up with the Phil for 2010
The Naples International Film Festival announces its collaboration with The Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts for its second annual film festival. As it did for its inaugural year, NIFF will have its opening gala and closing ceremonies at the Phil.
“The Naples International Film Festival is a right idea, and we are grateful to have it in our hall,” Myra Daniels, chairman and CEO of the Phil, says. “Last year’s award-winning film, ‘The Cove’ (a documentary that went on to win an Academy Award), was very exciting, and we look forward to another wonderful experience.”
NIFF Executive Director Rowan Samuel is thrilled. “The Phil is a world-class facility, and working with them has been a great experience,” he says.
The 2010 NIFF is set for Nov. 4-7. The festival’s mission is “to nurture and support a diverse, artistic and cultural experience in Collier County through the operation of a creative, cutting-edge boutique film festival.” NIFF showcases some of the most creative cinematic works in the world and at the same time supports, organizes and provides an outlet for Southwet Florida filmmakers and film lovers.
